This Diamant de Semilly colt brought in the top price at 19.000 euro and was sold to Germany. On Saturday the 28th of June, the Flanders Foal Auction was organised in Bonheiden. Besides one foal for charity, there were 19 other foals and three embryos in the catalog. One foal was absent. The foal for the benefit of the charity organisation fighting breast cancer "Think Pink" was sold for 4500 euros.

The 19 foals present brought together 210.500 euros, or an average price of 11.694 euros. The top price of 19.000 euros was payed for the impressive Diavo Wi-Ro Z, a colt of Diamant de Semilly and a Contender dam. The foal was purchased by the German Kai Gerken. The same stallion specialist also bought Oxford Quality for 15.000 euros. Oxford Quality is a strong son of Quick Star and the mare Charme (Casall x Cantus). Charme is also the dam of the super jumping Mr Quality Z, sold at the Flanders Foal Auction for 25.000 euros and in the mean time approved in Zangersheide.
